Born In Bethlehem: A Christmas Pageant
Join us for a participatory nativity pageant during our family Christmas service. Only a few roles are cast in advance of the service, the rest of the at least 27 participants (including shepherds, stars, kings, and animals) take part as the story is told. Everyone is invited to sing carols and gaze at a baby from our congregation as we experience this familiar story in a new meaningful and moving way. This will be the only service on Sunday morning.
December 24 – 8:00pm
Lessons and Carols
We gather again to celebrate the Christmas Story; the hope of birth and the miracle of life.
The Crossings Chorale will be performing music by John Rutter, CBE. His career as a composer has embraced both large and small-scal choral works, orchestral and instrumental pieces, a piano concerto and two children’s operas. This service’s first and second readings are translations of the Gospels of Luke (Loukas) and Matthew by Rev. Mark Belletini.
December 31 – 10:00am
One Wild and Precious Life: Annual Decades Service
Nine members of the congregation, representing nine different decades of life, offer their reflections on Mary Oliver’s poem, The Summer Day, sharing what they plan to do with their one wild and precious life. As it was last year, the first year we presented a Decades Service, this is an inspirational and motivational celebration of how we as UU’s view ourselves as we prepare to enter a new year. One service at 10am.
